Sly and the Family Stone Reissues

Epic/Legacy is finally releasing remastered editions of Sly & the Family Stone’s first seven studio albums on March 20, each with several bonus tracks and new liner notes. This is long over due.

Sly’s catalog has been criminally neglected. The label rushed out horribly mastered versions of the most popular albums in the early days of compact discs, but it took them until 1995 to release CD versions of the first three Sly albums, A Whole New Thing, Dance to the Music, and Life, each with a single bonus track: “What Would I Do,” “Soul Clappin’,” and “Only One Way Out of This Mess,” respectively. And now even those have gone out of print.

Hopefully this material will finally be given the respect it deserves.
